The *A booking code thread indicates that is a long haul award in Y.

(although it also indicates it is a premium economy fare class).

Have you been denied credit?

It's Business... deeply discounted but still more expensive than mileage-earning economy fares. I was very tempted to book a few trips but a quick check on united.com put me off.

Interesting, this same issue came up with relation to Spanair Z fares earlier this week: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unite...nus-miles.html

Are these trips actually operated by BD? If not won't the operating carrier determine mileage earning? So you could book a BD Z fare on United Metal and get miles because the flight is operated by United.


Notice this exception noted below BD's mileage earnings on united.com:


"If you purchase a ticket on a flight that is marketed by bmi but operated by another airline (known as a code-share flight), the operating airline determines how many miles you earn for your flight. "


Someone please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Unfortunately, they are all on routes (such as LHR-TXL) that are operated exclusively by BD (unlike, say, LHR-MXP which is split 50/50 between BD and their German masters).

Good fares, though (http://www.flybmi.com/bmi/en-gb/spec...SaleFlashMar11)!
